I want to share a project I have been working on for the last year. It is a quadcopter controller with full Linux support (maintained using buildroot)
The controller's features currently are:
The setup is relatively simple and includes 2 boards - AVR board (like Arduino Pro Mini) and SPI capable SBC (like Odroid W or RPi) wired together using SPI.
With the software provided the setup is of plug-and-play and you can control your quadcopter using PS3 controller or via network.
See the wiki for more information.
If you passionate about linux and quadcopters than this is something you should try! :)
Let me know if you have any questions.
Depends on what exactly you want to do. Check the AvrMiniCopter architecture: https://github.com/rpicopter/AvrMiniCopter-wiki/wiki/Design
If you want to hack the code that controls the quadcopter then you only need Arduino IDE. However if you want to recompile the Raspberry Pi/Odroid image then you need buildroot.
Yes I want to modify the code.
I want to know what Rapbian version you use to boot very quickry and small size.
This is not Raspbian what we are using. It is a custom build linux distribution.
I will do a writeup of how to compile it if I get some time but the basic steps are in here:
Thank you very much Gregory D for writeup of how to compile it.
Hi, How is it going, is it already flying?
Not yet. I can't to compile your code.
I've updated the installation scripts and readme.
Compile instructions you will find in the README:
I want to know. How altitude hold work?
Hi, what exactly are you trying to find out - how to activate altitude hold or what are the implementation details?
There is a new version available. You will need to configure the hover throttle before using altitude hold.
I want to know implementation details of altitude hold mode. I want appy to use for my firmware.
